And you thought the Seattle Mariners had bad timing

While watching your 401K disappear, worrying about the next general manager or next months mortgage, it might help to know some people have it even worse.

Take the Chicago Tribune.

Owners of the beloved and cursed Chicago Cubs, the Tribune spent money and time rushing out a book about that team's post-season run for the World Series it's been missing for, oh, 100 years or so.

The result was a book you can still buy for under $14 - if you hurry.

Currently, 'This Is The Year' ranks near the bottom of the top 2,400 books sold in October.

It would make a fine holiday gift for your favorite Cubs fan. Or not.
